As an employer, finding the right talent to join your team is crucial for the success of your business. However, the hiring process can be time-consuming, resource-intensive, and challenging to navigate on your own. That's where a recruitment consultancy can be your invaluable partner in finding the best candidates for your organisation.

In this article, Claire Lee, Managing Director of Rotherham based specialist recruiters, Multitask Personnel, explores the benefits of using a recruitment agency and why outsourcing your recruitment process can be a strategic choice for your business.

Access to a Pool of Qualified Candidates

One of the primary benefits of using a recruitment consultancy is their access to a vast pool of qualified candidates. Recruitment agencies have extensive databases and networks of potential candidates, including passive job seekers who may not be actively searching for a job but are open to new opportunities.

This means they can connect you with candidates who may not be readily available through traditional job postings or in-house recruitment efforts. This access to a larger talent pool increases your chances of finding highly qualified candidates who are the best fit for your organisation.

At Multitask Personnel we work with job seekers who are looking for roles within construction & property, mechanical & electrical, civil engineering, environmental, and business support.

Expertise in Candidate Screening and Vetting

Recruitment consultancies are experts in candidate screening and vetting. They have the knowledge and experience to thoroughly assess candidates' skills, qualifications, and suitability for a specific role. This includes conducting initial interviews, checking references, and verifying qualifications.

All this saves you time and effort in the hiring process. Recruiters also have access to various tools and technologies that can help assess candidates' cultural fit and personality traits, ensuring that you are presented with top-quality candidates who align with your organisation's values and culture.

Time and Resource Saving

It’s no secret that the recruitment process can be time-consuming and resource-intensive. It requires significant investment in advertising, reviewing applications, conducting interviews, and conducting background checks (to name but a few). But when you use a recruitment consultancy, they take care of all these tasks, saving you time and resources.

This allows you to focus on your core business activities and strategic initiatives, while the recruitment agency handles the time-consuming aspects of the hiring process on your behalf, behind the scenes. In addition, using a recruitment agency can help you avoid the costs associated with bad hires, as they are skilled in identifying the best-fit candidates for your organisation, with a high success rate!

Market Insights and Industry Knowledge

Recruiters have a deep understanding of the job market and industry trends. They are well-equipped to provide you with market insights and industry knowledge that can inform your hiring decisions. This includes information on salary benchmarks, talent availability, and competitive hiring practices.

And for recruitment consultancies, such as Multitask Personnel, having specialities in specific industries means they have a comprehensive understanding of the skills and qualifications required for various roles. This industry knowledge allows them to provide valuable guidance on the job market and help you make informed decisions in hiring the right candidates.

Confidentiality and Discretion

When hiring for sensitive positions or replacing key personnel, maintaining confidentiality and discretion is critical. Recruitment agencies understand the importance of confidentiality and can handle sensitive hiring processes with the utmost discretion.

They can protect your company's reputation and ensure that the hiring process remains confidential, especially when dealing with senior-level or executive positions. This allows you to conduct your hiring process discreetly without any potential disruption to your business operations.

Flexible and Scalable Solutions

Recruitment agencies offer flexible and scalable solutions to meet your specific hiring needs. Whether you need to fill a single position or have ongoing hiring requirements, they can tailor their services to accommodate your needs.

They can quickly adapt to changes in your hiring demands, such as sudden spikes in hiring or changes in your organisation's growth trajectory. This flexibility allows you to efficiently manage your hiring process and ensure that you have the right talent in place to support your business goals at all times.

Using a recruitment consultancy, such as Multitask Personnel, can provide numerous benefits to employers when compared to trying to do the recruitment process in house. So if you’re business is ready to work with a highly successful, local agency, speak to our dedicated team of recruitment experts today on 01709 820102 or enquiries@multitaskpersonnel.co.uk

Our client operates a variety of food outlets, restaurants, and coffee shops within airports and train stations nationwide.  We were approached by them to support with a mass recruitment drive for team members in several locations following the travel industry opening back up again after Covid-19.

Building a new client relationship

It was important to our client that they maintained the great working environment they’ve built up over the years when recruiting for new staff. This meant we had to ensure that we were reiterating to candidates what was on offer to them, such as full training and an excellent starting salary.

It was essential that we screened candidates to ensure they had the correct attitude, customer service skills, and present themselves well, as well as checking they could work the hours required of them. Once this was all in place, we could then book them in for a client interview.

To further strengthen the relationship with our client, we would arrange for a weekly team meeting to discuss any candidates in the process, and review how things were going with the recruitment drive. We maintain a great working relationship with the client because of this.

Managing the hiring process

With all new positions, we advertise and search for potential candidates, talk to them about the company, the opportunity, and benefits, ensuring they meet the criteria before organising a video interview and then sending them for a face-to-face interview with the client.

For this client specifically, we supported the recruitment process for both permanent, and temp to perm.  We have also managed their own direct recruitment campaign, overseeing the whole process for them by acting as their outsourced recruitment team.

Finalising the recruitment process

Once candidates have attended a client interview and are successful, we organise for them to attend an induction to obtain all the paperwork they need to take along over to them, plus explain what’s needed for the security pass. We keep in touch with the candidates before they’re due to start right through to their start date.

The result

Since working with our client, we have filled in excess of 100 positions between March 2022 and September 2022, all over the country. Offering temporary and permanent positions in roles such as: Fast Food Assistants, Chef, Front of House, Supervisors, Bar Staff, Baristas, Hosts and Kitchen Assistants.

"We have been working with Claire and the Multitask team for a number of years and we love their ingenuity. They have helped us find management roles, casual roles and managed a recruitment campaign for us as we did not have the resource to do in house, all of which have been a great success. No matter how challenging the recruitment sourcing is the Multitask team will always think outside of the box and try new ideas, and if something isn’t working or can work better they are always the first to suggest a new approach to ensure they achieve our recruitment needs. It’s a pleasure to work with all of the team."
